Kansas City MLK Rename On The Paseo Dispute Continues As Petition Drive Confronts Dismissal Over Funding Probs

High hopes from grassroots organizers might not save a sloppily worded petition that attempts to stop civil rights progress on this swath of land. This article plays catch-up on the effort that has already been widely reported but also informs us that the sign change across the Blvd will be complete in just a matter of days. Developing:

Petitioners seek signatures to undo Paseo renaming for MLK | The Kansas City Star

The Kansas City Council voted 8-4 on Jan. 24, 2019 to rename The Paseo for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Some property and business owners on The Paseo have started a petition initiative to squash plans to rename the street for the civil rights leader.

Rename it James Earl Ray Avenue and there aren’t any funding problems.

Just another "F**K You" to the Kansas City Residents from the Mayor and Every Councilperson, what's new about that?

"Charter? We don't got to follow no steenking Charter!"

I’ve noticed that KCTV-5 still calls it the Paseo whenever someone gets killed there.

Everyone still calls it Paseo this should have never been done behind tax payers backs. Spending money to the King family every year when we need so much done. That was dirty.

It's difficult to maintain our position as the fifth most dangerous city in the US without having an MLK Blvd. It just wouldn't be right.

Typical business and bullying from corrupt city hall.

I signed the petition yesterday at the downtown branch library. It's a long shot, but a worthwhile effort.

I'm not opposed to renaming some street after MLK Jr. I just think it should be the street that's currently named after Emmanuel Cleaver.

@10:32, in your moronic post you forgot to explain what a "moronioc" post was.
Can you enlighten us?
As with everything you post, your fans Really REALLY care and would like to know.

This is the monumental City Council accomplishment for the year. Failure of this City is parallel to the failure of the Council members personal lives. A philosophy of grab as much money for east side pet projects is the ambition of this council and has been for years.
